The classes prepare students for many options in post-high school choices. • The school's recognition of cultural and linguistic char- acteristics of Hispanics by addition of support pro- grams, clubs and activities. One problem area pointed out in the report, is the school li- brary. The report states that the library is becoming increasingly more inadequate with less than 1% of its materials being under five years old. A budgetary cut of 50.8% from 1987-88 and reduc- tion of library staffare all indica- tions that the library needs major attention. On a brighter note, five com- puters were purchased for the library and work is in progress to form links to the outside world. School staff and the commit- tee devised an action plan for the school to follow in the next six years, including the contin- ued development, achieving, as- sessing and monitoring of ESLRs; increasing students' success in meeting ESLRs; in-: vestigating and implementing interdisciplinary teachingmeth-, ods which promote achievement of the ESLRs; increasing stu- dent access to a greater variety of community and school re- sources and programs; and in- vestigating, developing and implementing curricular paths that enhance and promote stu- dent learning plans. In three years, two committee members will return to CHSand monitor how well the school is meeting goals set by the plan. Accreditation Committee findings on Cloverdale High • Results from a 1996 sur- vey of graduating seniors indicate that 75% of re- spondents believed the ac- ademic preparation they received was satisfactory to excellent and 86% be- lieved the same to be true of the quality of classroom instruction they received. • A survey showed that par- ents want to see more com- puter work, smaller classes, peer involvement, support systems and com- munity service. • A study of 9th-12th grad- ers' grade point averages over the past three years shows a trend indicating the overall GPA is rising. In 1993-94, (2.51); 1994- 95, (2.53) and 1995-96, (2.59). • The study also shows there is a significant difference between male and female GPAs. In 1993-94, male (2.34), female (2.67); 1994- 95, male (2.30), female, (2.72); 1995-96, male (2.41), female (2.74). • CHS identified a dispro- portionate number of fe- males in advanced academic classes. The males seem to be dispro- portionately enrolled in hands-on electives. • There are proportionally fewer nonwhites in ad- vanced classes than whites, but this is not as great a discrepancy as with the male/female ratio in the same classes. • The ethnic breakdown (av- erage 3.0 GPA or better) over three years: Asian, 60%; black, 12.5%; Indi- an, 7%; Hispanic, 23%; white, 28%.
